HERZOGENAURACH, Germany – World long jump champion Tajay Gayle has singed with Puma, a German multinational company that designs and manufactures athletic and casual footwear, apparel and accessories.

Gayle created history, becoming the first Jamaican man to win a men’s long jump world title in Doha 2019. Gayle’s winning effort of 8.69 (+0.5 m/s) was not only a national record; it also moved him to 10th on the all-time list.

No details of the deal were made public.

Puma, the main financial backbone behind Jamaica’s track and field success, also signed Japanese sprinter Hakim Sani Brown, who has decided to turn pro.

The 20 years old sub-10 sprinter was part of Japanese World bronze medal 4×100 m team and will play a special role in marketing plans for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
